Outer Space: Another Day of Flying High
I’m a wanderer~
Above the sea of fog and misty sky,
I fly at 38 thousand feet,
In the depth of blue open sky,
I’m a wanderer flying high.
“Hello”, I said and smile at them
“Welcome aboard, boarding pass please”.
Now, all aboard, no empty seats,
I shut the door and crosschecked.
Flight deck is crammed, no space I peeped,
Charming pilots cross checking still,
Fingers flipping switches, On & Off
High & Low, running colored screens.
Watch the aircraft shadow as we glide in the sky~
Soon this beast will leave the land,
Of dreams and all routines,
The safety demo is now on screen,
Watch and pay attention please.
My legs are long and so this flight,
Stop looking down my heels,
Don’t be nervous, enjoy the trip.
Take a gravol if you might.
I hear the engine now sneering,
Signal lights are flashing,
Fasten your seatbelts please,
Destination is Outer Space.
Once up in the air I will be passing,
With my trolley of food and drinks,
“Watch your knees, watch your elbows”
“Trolley behind you, pardon me”.
Recline your seat if you wish,
But save your forty winks don’t starve,
“Beef Bourguignon or Chicken Parmesan”?
“Coffee, Tea or Me, I mean beer?”
And though it’s set on autopilot,
Let’s give praise to our handsome pilots,
We’ve arrived safe, say bye and thanks,
To those who paid the price to fly.
"Love, Light and Twinkle from the sky." ~
Travel is about experiences and meeting new people, not hotels and packages. Agree?

A career as a Flight Attendant is very competitive and advancement takes more time. Well, this is because flight attendants mostly remain in their jobs for a longer period of time and simply because they love their job. So, what does it...
